Ford moved its Dutch headquarters, including FCE Bank, to The Oak Building, a wing of the Garden Offices in Amstelveen. Before the design phase, DZAP ran a technical due diligence investigation and then worked towards a design for a modern, open, transparent office. The characteristics: distinctive, inspiring, functional, robust, and with a clear Ford identity. The use of heavy industrial elements evokes the atmosphere of an old-fashioned garage. The company’s rich history is given a place of honour in the location on the ‘wall of fame’ in the cafeteria.
